    so i got them installed and got a alignment done today. i have a vibration and i do think its bad enough that more needs to be done to make it better. the vibration was worse before the alignment but it still vibrates and kinda "howls" around 100km/h. the parts installed are billies 5100 f+r, front set at highest setting with stock coils. got a diff lowering kit too (spacer). the rear has a custom ALL that raised the rear about 2.5".

    what kinda parts would fix my vibrations?

    thanks.

    im takin my diff drop out as soon as the weather warms up. after lots of reading ive realized they do more harm then good . the real problem is the cv boot itself and it can be modified

    What did you find about the CV boot and what is the mod that you speak of? I have vibes after a recent lift and haven't seen anything about that? I'm not sure my CV's are the issue though, as they look pretty good to me:

    No one was willing to offer any additional advice for me though?

    To the OP... put your truck in 4hi while going about 30mph and see if your vibe/howl goes away.. If so... Welcome to the club of bad front diff bearing! :)
    If not, and the vibe is only between 5-20mph then its your drive line... simple axle shim and or Carrier Bearing drop will/should fix it...

    I kept my diff drop in bc it did help my cv angles...
    hope this helps you out, and makes sense.

    i took the front diff spacer out and put some spacers in the carrier bearing (1/2") made it pretty good but still vibrates above 80km/h. it also makes noise when i am going around a curve to the left...

    any other guess's?

    Maybe you got a bad bearing man. Could be as easy as that. When you lift the max on the bills the sway bar can rub against the uca so that could be the noise you hear turning
